Guangze Social Welfare Institute

The Guangze Social Welfare Institute is located in the northwestern part of Fujian Province in the beautiful and spectacular Wuyi mountains, about 225 miles from Fuzhou. It was established in 1981. Guangze is near the border between Fujian and Jiangxi Provinces and is accessible by an 8-hour train ride. This institute is quite small, and most of the children living there have special needs. Like many social welfare institutes, the majority of the residents are elderly people. The first international adoptions from Guangze were in 2001.
